Happy Shit – 1/18/13

Hi everyone! I hope your week sucked less than mine. Mine sucked like a black hole.
All your sanity goes in and crazy comes out.
 Fun fact of the week: Before 1920, it was technically legal to send children through the mail.
Who wants to go visit grandma?!
On to the happy shit!

This video of a super happy guinea pig popcorning (no, that is not a seizure) is absolutely ADORABLE. For those of you who don't know, popcorning is when guinea pigs jump straight into the air (sometimes up to 6 inches) and have a little, wiggly orgasm of happiness in the air. Then they repeat as necessary.
Okay, since I shared the links to Bad Lip Synching last week, their new NFL video has gone viral. Holy shit you guys, I created a fucking trend! This is the really bad lip reading of NFL clips if you haven't seen it.
And the whole floor was covered in bean bags.
And here is Einstein the parrot doing an interview.
She can make laser noises. LASER NOISES.
A beautiful ballet piece featuring physically handicapped dancers.
None of us are perfect, but that doesn't mean we can't be beautiful.
In keeping with the ballet theme, the Guangdong Acrobatic Troupe's interpretation of Swan lake is amazing. They add in gymnastics, juggling, trampolines, unicycles, and a whole bunch of other stuff. So, like Cirque de Soleil without the creepiness. It is on YouTube in 11 parts: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7, Part 8, Part 9, Part 10, Part 11.
He has a woman balancing on his head. In pointe shoes.
Then there is this: Eye of the Tiger on a Keytar. KEYTAR!!!! She also does the Xena Theme.
Keytar: the kind of all 80's instruments.
Sorry it is a short list, but it has been that kind of week. I will endeavor to post on Monday.

I feel comforted that your week was shitastic too! It's 7pm and I'm thinking about going to bed!

Valerie said...

That NFL lip reading thing is the best. I like to believe that that's exactly how it went down too.

Hope this week is going better for you!

Amber: I totally went to bed at 7:30, but it turned out that was a mistake as I was awake at 3:30am. Dammit.

Val: I am going to say that it is probably what they are really saying and the boring "real" stuff is dubbed in. Conspiracy.
